This is an introduction to "a sailors tales of bars and bargirls". Memories from my adventurous time in the merchant marine. I was a rather wild young man, and my tales contain erotic material. After all, the bar girls were usually attractive and eager to provide a good time for a young sailor. In this series I will share those memories with you. I have edited my memories in the hope that nobody shall feel disturbed by the text. The events are all true but be warned, my memories may not be all that accurate.. Most events took place when I was young (Late -60's and the -70's) After I married I calmed down.I you feel offended/disturbed by the subject matter (consensual sex, prostitution) then please don't download or read it.

The Alaskan Voyage of the Sea Shanty
This is my story of healing and exploration while fulfilling a lifelong dream of sailing my own boat to Alaska. Sailing to Alaska is common enough but sailing in a boat you finished yourself is less common. The experience allowed me to grow out of my illness and experience life to a much fuller extent.

Don't Drink the Water
So what the hell was I doing in South East Asia anyway? This was no spiritual journey of self discovery. As a matter of fact, self discovery was one of the things I was trying to avoid.From the constant conversations about cricket that arise from being an Australian in India to mushroom-induced comas in Laos, find out exactly how much fun is too much fun... So what the hell was I doing in South East Asia anyway? This was no spiritual journey of self discovery. As a matter of fact, self discovery was one of the things I was trying to avoid. There was no ultimate destination and no purpose to my trip beyond seeing things I hadn't seen before. I left behind my relatively dull existence in Sydney to travel to nine different countries over the course of a single year. I was not so much searching for as running away from something. Well, not so much running away as stumbling away and then forgetting exactly what I was doing there in the first place. From the constant conversations about
Wild Dogs and Nutters
in a time when Communism still ruled and mobile phones, the Internet and denture whitening were things of the future a deluded and ill equipped young couple set out on a 32,000km surreal adventure across some of the most remote areas in the world to break a 15 year old world record and prove to themselves that it's not 'evil' nations' you need to beware of but the people who tell you such toss! Hapless or hopeless? It’s a tough call. We’ve been called both, probably quite fairly. But despite the catalogue of disasters, bad decisions and wild swings from feeling like intrepid explorers to feeling like a luxury hotel with en suite everything we did set out from London one morning on a tandem and arrive eighteen months later in Sydney, almost in one piece. Our route took us across Western and what was then still Eastern Europe and over the Bosphorous into Asia. Despite initially being refused a visa and the British Consulate warning us not to go, Iran followed Turkey and then Pakistan

The BBC said: "Most of us would think twice about trying to get to the end of our street, without cash in our pockets. But what about going a little bit further....with no money, no food and no way of getting home?Meet Kris Mole. He's the 24 year old brains behind the Great Euro Freebie Challenge in aid of Cancer Research."After reading please rate and review. Unless you didn't like it. Hmmmm. 24-year-old Kris Mole from Brighton was lost. Not literally. No, he knew his way around Brighton. But he was lost in life. A compulsive gambler since childhood, Kris’ philosophy for life boiled down to: "The greater the risk, the greater the reward." Sensible decisions were not part of his being. And then one drunken night on the pebbles of Brighton beach a heart to heart with an old friend saw a financially crippled Kris proclaiming, “I am going to go and see Europe. And I am going to do it without any money. Who needs cash anyway?”And so the Great Euro Freebie Challenge was dreamt up. Kris
Waterfalls & Lava Floes
Warning - going further is not recommended! Do not approach the volcano! But we could see a steaming cloud up ahead, promising views of molten lava. We looked right and noticed sulfuric fumes billowing up, bringing back warnings of “don’t get surrounded by lava”. As I looked left, I heard a yelp of surprise. Looking back – and then down – I found Paul hip-deep in pumice.

Arabian Sands, A Book Review
Mary Jo Kelly Wilhelm
Travel tales across the Empty Quarter of Arabia during the dangerous times of the 1940s with Engilsh explorer Wilfred Thesiger. A powerful sketch of the man and the Arab Bedouin who were his guides and friend in a hostile physical and social environment. From the review:Arabian Sands by Wilfred Thesiger Arabian Sands. Wilfred Thesiger. Penguin Books. 1964. Longmans, Green. 1959 His first name is so English. Wilfred. The name of Saxon saints and kings in Northumbria over a millennium ago. Never in my life would I have met such a man. And even if I had met him in some pub in Wales or some lodge in Scotland, never would I have managed to engage him in conversation to the extent that he would tell me about his travels to The Empty Quarter of Saudi Arabia in the late 40’s. This man was as alien to me as the land to which he travelled. I am glad he wrote this book. The Imam of Oman did not want Thesiger to come. The Arabs fought the arrival of the Christians, the oil seekers. Wilfred The
